After taking apart my laptop (Dell Latitude E7240) the keyboard and touchpad weren't working. After opening it up again I've noticed the keyboard connector on the motherboard seems to be slightly broken.

Here's a picture of the connector: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/243013730135179264/540606609357799459/IMG_20190131_193843.jpg

BTW, the keyboard is bent (I must've bent it while taking it out), but that still doesn't explain why the touchpad isn't working.

So, is there something I can do without sending the laptop to a repair service?
